Since 2012, True Patriot Love has produced ambitious expeditions around the world, which have directly impacted the lives of 59 Canadian Armed Forces members and engaged 85 influential Canadian business leaders. These expeditions have raised an incredible $7 million in funding for Veterans’ transition. Funds raised have allowed for enhanced job training and recruitment, provided 144 Veterans with rapid job placement, helped to fund more than 8,400 hours of peer-to-peer mental health counselling, and allowed for a $500,000 investment to create a virtual reality therapy program for Veterans living with PTSD which has been implemented across the country.

Our civilian participants are committed business and community leaders from across Canada who fundraise to help True Patriot Love fulfil its mission of supporting military families, and participate in a mentorship program with the military team members.

Our military expeditioners are currently serving members or Veterans of the Canadian Armed Forces who have sustained a service-related illness or injury. They are encouraged to fundraise to help True Patriot Love continue its important work. All their participant fees, however, are covered by True Patriot Love, including flights, local transportation and gear.

Our expeditions are a life-changing experience for both civilian and military participants.

“I have learned more from our Veterans on these expeditions about bravery, patriotism, service and a commitment to leaving no one behind than from any activity I have undertaken. Our Vets are truly inspirational.”

– Timothy Hodgson, Managing Partner, Alignvest Management Corp.
TPL Expedition Co-chair (Himalayas, North Pole & Antarctica)

“It was amazing to reach the summit, but the truth is the value of this experience for me can be found in every step we took together as a team, every story we told, every person and animal we passed, and every moment we shared.”

– Chris Power, Veteran and TPL Expedition Participant (Himalayas, 2018)
